Alicia Jolla & Marcus LeBeouf

Venue: New St. John Baptist Church in Charlotte, NC

Honeymoon: Maui, HI

Home: Minneapolis, MN

Alicia is senior group manager of operations for Target. Marcus is an attorney at Gray Plant Mooty. After a coworker introduced the duo, text messages turned into long phone conversations, which led to meeting in person. Marcus knew he wanted to spend his life with Alicia after just one date. He loves her spirit and wit and she appreciates his faith and sense of humor.

He knew he was in love when…

He felt like he had finally met someone who understood him and was so supportive of his dreams.

She knew she was in love when…

She noticed that Marcus has an infectious spirit. When she was around him, he always pushed her to be optimistic and strive to be her best self. She knew she loved him when the best part of her day was seeing him or hearing his voice.

In 10 years we will…

Still be madly in love and hopefully blessed with two children.

Before the groom got married, he wishes someone had told him…

How much fun marriage is! Even though he’s married, Marcus still dates his wife and works to keep her affection. He believes, there’s nothing like building a life with your best friend.

Before the bride got married, she wishes someone had told her…

How hard it would be to change her last name on everything (license, passport, frequent flyer info etc.). She didn’t realize the process could take up to six months!

Our favorite activity to do together is…

Travel and movies.

Our nickname for each other is…

“Love.” Using that word as each other’s nickname reinforces why we are together.

Our favorite place to spend time together is…

Walking around the lakes in Minnesota or on our couch watching a good movie.

Our song is…

Tony Terry’s “When I’m With You.”

Our perfect date night is…

Dinner and a movie.
